01 Introduction to the ELITE Series Flat Panel TVs

1.2.2 Operating the Remote Control

The remote control for the ELITE Series panels is a powerful tool. This section provides a brief introduction to your remote control while later sections explore more advanced operations.

Insert the Batteries into the Remote Control

To open push and slide the battery cover in the direction of the arrows.

Load the supplied two AA size batteries by the negative polarity (–) ends first.

The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions. If the remote control seems to be failing or is weak, replace the provided batteries with new alkaline batteries. Never mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause

chemical leaks in old batteries. Also, mixing different types or brands of batteries can cause issues as batteries brands have slightly different characteristics.

Note: If the flat panel TV’s remote control is not needed for an extended length of time, remove the batteries.

When disposing of used batteries, please comply with governmental regulations or environmental public institution’s rules that apply in your country/area.

Remote Control Issues

There are several issues that can affect your remote control but the most common problem is weak batteries. Weak batteries in the remote control can cause communication to fail or only operate sporadically. In this situation, try moving closer to the panel and attempt to control the panel with the remote. If the panel responds then change the batteries. If moving closer has no effect on the panel, check the surroundings for objects that might be blocking the signal. Also consider other equipment with remote controls that are in the area around the panel. Objects and other IR signals can disrupt the remote. For more help with your remote control, refer to “6.1 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).”

2 Install Your Flat Panel TV

There are several installation options for your flat panel TV. This chapter walks you through how to choose an installation site, the best mounting methods, and how to install your panel.

2.1 Choose a Location and the Mounting Method

Your flat panel TV is very thin. The panel needs a solid surface and some sort of support structure (a stand, table, etc.) to protect it from being tipped over or knocked down. Use installation accessories and parts included with the shipment. Pioneer recommends working with a qualified installer whenever possible.

Regardless of the mounting method, anchor or secure your flat panel TV using a combination of the mounting holes and/or supplied bolts.

Attach/Detach the Speaker

The flat panel TV’s speaker delivers high-quality, clear sound. Although other devices can be added or removed from the mounted panel, physically attach the speaker last. Disconnect the cables from the Speaker and REMOVE THE SPEAKER before mounting or moving the panel.

Before attaching the speaker to your mounted panel, review the information below.

Lay the panel face down on a stable surface when attaching speaker brackets.

Use only the supplied screws and tighten securely before stepping away.

Handle the speaker carefully to protect the cabinet and grille net from scratches and other damage.

Placing a CRT monitor near the speaker can cause a blur on the flat panel TV. Keep the distance between the speaker and the monitor.

Connecting these speakers to another panel or device can damage the unit or cause a fire.

When using tone control to increase treble, avoid overamplifying the volume.

Note: Use the foam packing materials to protect the equipment from scratches or other damage during mounting.

02 Install Your Flat Panel TV

A common flat panel TV mounting option is to hang the panel on a sturdy wall or from a reinforced ceiling. When mounting in this way, some preparations must be completed first. Follow the steps below to prepare the panel for mounting.

1 ) Attach the speaker brackets to the speaker (see page 19). 2 ) Attach the speaker to the panel (see page 21).

(PRO-111FD)

3 ) Connect the speaker cables to the speakers then to the panel (see page 22).

4 ) Connect cables for any other devices to the panel.

When deciding on a location for your flat panel TV, consider other equipment in the room. Equipment such as a DVR, Receiver, VCR, etc. requires some way to communicate with the panel, either directly or through another device. Review the instructions that came with the other equipment for available ports and terminals.

After deciding which ports and terminals are needed, mark the connections on the flat panel TV for easier identification once the panel is mounted.

5 ) Temporarily bundle loose cables with rubber bands (not included).

6 ) Plug the flat panel TV’s power cord in to the panel but do NOT plug in to the power outlet.

7 ) Follow installation directions provided with your selected wall/ceiling mount.

For details, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the wall/ceiling mount unit.

2.4 Mount the Flat Panel TV

Because your flat panel TV is slim but heavy, have at least two people mount and/or position the panel. The following sections provide instructions for the different mounting and anchoring options.

Anchor the Panel When Using a Stand

When using a stand, stabilize the panel to keep it from tipping over. Please use the supplied metal fittings and screws to anchor the panel to a wall or other solid support structure.

Another option is to purchase hooks, cords, and fittings through your installer or from your local hardware store. The hardware size and strength depends on the composition and thickness of the anchoring surface.

Recommended hook: Nominal diameter 8 mm (3/8 inch), length 12 mm to 18 mm (0.5 inches to 0.7 inches)

To anchor the panel when using the provided stand, follow the steps below.

1 ) Attach the hooks to the mounting holes on the back of the panel.

2 ) Sink the fittings into the wall or support structure.

 

3 ) Run cords between the hooks and the fittings.

2.6 Connect to Broadcast TV & Other Devices (DVR, Receiver, BDR, etc.)

The type of equipment attached to your flat panel TV determines which panel ports are used. The following sections explain how to connect broadcast TV and playback equipment such as a DVD player, Surround Sound system, video recorder, etc. to the panel. If your equipment is not listed, please refer to the operating instructions that came with the device(s) for connection assistance.

2.6.1 Add Analog (conventional) and Digital TV Channels

Whether a TV station broadcasts in Analog or Digital, your flat panel TV shows the programs as long as the panel is programmed to accept the signal. To program your panel for broadcast TV, select terminal ANT.

The ANT terminal accepts both analog and digital

If your outdoor antenna uses a 75-ohm coaxial cable with an F-type connector, plug it into the panel’s antenna terminal on the back.

In order to watch both analog and digital broadcasts through your terrestrial antenna or cable connection, you must first connect

the antenna cable to a splitter.

2.6.2 Connect Your Other Pioneer Equipment

This section provides cabling information for your other

Pioneer equipment when combined with the panel. Each diagram can also be used as a reference tool for non-Pioneer devices but port locations may differ or be unavailable.

2.6.3 Connect the Power Cord to the Panel

The final connection is the power cord. Always connect the panel’s power cord to a three-pronged outlet, verifying that the cord is properly grounded. The cord includes a noise filter that reduces electrical interference from the wall outlet.

As long as the flat panel TV is plugged in to an outlet, some power is drawn through the panel. When the flat panel TV is not going to be used for a long period, unplug the panel from the power outlet. Unplugging the panel extends the life of the plasma as well as saves energy.

Plug the cord in to the panel but do NOT plug it in to a power outlet yet.

2.7 Route then Bundle the Power Cord and Cables

Once the flat panel TV is mounted and the speaker is attached, place additional equipment in the final position(s). Lay out the power cord, panel cables and any other device cables in a logical pattern that works for the location. Please consider the following points when routing cables:

Access to a 3-prong (grounded) power outlet

Space for the noise filter between the panel and outlet

Placement of cables under carpets or across walking paths

Usually the cord/cables have slack or are too long. Although rubber bands are a good temporary solution to bundle cables, they tend to break down too quickly. To keep cables organized and neat, use the included cable clamps to bundle cables. The diagram below shows a bundled speaker cable.
